‘Party’, the new single by Danish artist Gurli Octavia, is taken from acclaimed debut album ‘I Could Be Blossoming Instead’ (Line of Best Fit 8/10, NMR 10/10, Side 33 6/6, GFR 5/6) and follows recent radio favourites ‘X-Ray’ and ‘Spinning’ and over 1.7 million artist streams.
Editorial playlist adds included spots on 14 official Spotify lists (and multiple recent New Music Friday sets) and 3 Apple Music playlists including New Music Daily and support from the Apple Music Pop team.
The sub-3 minute alt-pop single, with Gurli’s stunning voice to the fore, lays bare the artist’s soul about the personal demons she’s faced and overcome in recent years:
“Put bluntly, Party is a song about being a lousy partner, because you’re taking too many drugs and partying too hard.”
After recent airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Ulster, BBC Bristol and on all 3 Danish national radio stations, numerous tours in the Nordics and festival slots at the likes of Roskilde & SPOT, Gurli hopes that 2021 (Covid permitting) could be her break-out year.
